Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Fever To Tell (2003)


Wow, indie trends sucks.

You all know what I'm talking about, every month there's a new band who indie people will tell you are "the best band ever" and then next month they've forgotten all about that band and moves on to the next.

This is one of those bands, this band plays on having a female singer who acts all crazy and screams. Yeah, it's that cheap. The music itself falls down under the "garage rock" category I guess, and it's not that bad, but the vocals sounds too much like "we're just like any other band but we have a girl as a singer and SHE ACTS CRAZY AND DOESN'T CARE ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK!!!!!".

Yeah, and they're from New York too, how hip.

I've heard a few songs from their other EP's and at the first listen I thought these were remakes of the old songs, but it wasn't, they all sound the same. Well, not exactly the same, but you know what I mean, right? If you don't know what I mean I can tell you that I mean that this band sounds like any other garage rock bnd if they had a female singer.

But there is one thing I like on this CD, the surf-like guitar and the hard percussion on "Y Control" is pretty cool, but the rest is completly by the book. There are slower songs like "No No No", bluesy songs like "Black Tongue", but it's all so god damn boring.

But the press loves them, people who are "hip" loves them, but I don't and I don't really see why anyone should...

...unless you're an indie kid of course, because being one allows you to like them one month until the next band takes over.
